Three Ways to Become a Lease Holder
An annual lease gives members a choice of tent sites and the right to reserve your camp for your time periods during the summer. Lease holders may reserve the Pond for an exclusive gathering of friends and family for one weekend a year.
Friends of Faraway
Volunteer your time or skill and join in planting, trail making and gardening or carpentry, and in exchange get a membership that entitles you to access to all pond amenities for the year.
From time to time, we may invite someone with a special message or skill to share with our members. These Master Teachers will receive an Honorary Membership. The members will get a cool opportunity to take a Master Class.
Every Season is Special at Faraway Pond
Swim, paddle, kayak, and fish in the pristine waters or just relax on the white sand beach or deck. Miles of walking trails through woods and meadows and offer an opportunity to fully experience all the wildlife, flowers and views that make New Hampshire famous.
Our favorite time in the Great North Woods Is Fall. Bright sun, blazing colors and crisp air are perfect for hikes, and cozy times by the fire. Pick apples in our our own organic orchard. We hope to host a cider making day every Fall.
The air is clean and brisk, and when there is snow on the trails cross country skiing or snowshoeing is a fun activity. In winter the wildlife tracks are abundant and the mountain views spectacular. When the ice is thick, we can skate on the pond, go ice fishing or sled down the hill to the orchard.
Once the ice melts, the peepers (tiny frogs) crank up announcing that Spring is here. It takes a long time to see the leaves and flowers in the North Country, but when the sun rises after a frosty night, the sap also runs in our native maple trees. Stop by a local Maple Sugar Shack and experience the warm moist fog as it boils down to syrup.
